How do we best extrapolate training from the video evidence of a critical incident? Simply stated, when we review a video and we do not have all of the facts and data regarding why the behavior we see is unfolding, we "critique" the actions of those players in the video. As trainers, we have to establish "RCA" after a full analysis has been completed. "RCA" means Replicate, Change or Avoid - in the development of training we must identify what behavior we seek to "replicate," what behavior we seek to "change," and in some cases, the behavior we seek to "avoid" in the actions of those involved - (RCA). Without identifying these aspects of the event, we are simply critiquing the actions based on our own experience, our own training and our own "opinions." This is not an analysis! We must look specifically at the occurrence for what it is, not what we think should have happened, could have happened or would have happened "if".
